Parker 51 Custom Mk. lll in Teal

Regular price £95.00

The Parker 51 Mk. III was introduced in 1969, and gave way to the Mk. lV in 1971. This is a Mk. lll Custom pen, only made for a very short period.  It is in first class condition throughout, and is a superb writer.

The pen is finished in Teal with a rolled Gold cap which carries a Gold filled  'arrow' clip and a pearl grey end stud.  This was replaced with an integral metal stud in 1971, apparently there was some concern about toddlers ingesting the pearl stud!  This pen therefore had a very short production run, always a good sign for collectors.  The pen also has a Gold filled clutch ring, a sure sign that it is a genuine Custom pen.

The overall condition of the pen suggests that it has seen very little use.  The pen body is flawless with a deep, lustrous shine, the 'Custom' cap shows no dings and the 'pli-glass' ink sac is unstained. 

The pen has been fully serviced and tested.  The Aerometric filling system is simple and easy to use and works well.  The 14Ct. Gold nib is exceptional, it writes with a very smooth and consistent medium line, perhaps a little on the fine side, it is a very 'easy' writer.

Despite being over fifty years old the Parker 51 Mk. III still has a modern appearance but with all the Parker 51 prestige. It would make a great vintage every day user.
